It's been a long time since I visited. I'm back into the game after 5th edition. I love it! Ahem, anyway, to the topic at hand.
Is there a Space Marine chapter that uses the Ultramarines symbol? I've scoured my tomes of Space Marine goodness and the digital interweb and have not found any.
Ultramarines use the ultramarines symbol...
Um, thanks. That's one, how about another? lol
In the Space Marine Codex Pg 25 there are 'The Sons of Orar', who use the ultramarines symbol, but it is red rather then blue (or white), and upside down.
Hope that helps!
My main reason for asking is that I would like to use some of the cool Ultramarine metal models but I don't want a blue army. I'm willing to use the symbol and will create my own chapter but before I do, wanted to see if there was another chapter using that symbol and check out if I like the look.
There are a few who use it, i think. Try Lexicanum. Sons of Ultramar and similar chapters are a good place to start
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
The alternative of course is that you could always just file away or green stuff a new symbol over it. It would be cool to see a sons of ultramar army or something similar though. You could even make up your own successor chapter.

If you're of a mind to create a custom chapter, you could just say they were one of the many chapters split off the Ultramarines during the Second Founding, but they wear the "U" symbol as a reminder of where they came from. To eliminate confusion, I'd suggest a VERY different paint scheme from the Ultras, however, just to be clear to your opponents.
Either that, or you could create a NEW symbol that incorporates the "U," using the same fluff suggestion mentioned above. Isn't that how the Crimson Fists came about? They came from the Imperial Fists, right? You could do it like that, only with the Ultramarines.
